Career Stats
Quick Scouting Report Update: Never really got it going this year as he had an injury during major league spring training then was never invited to the auxiliary camp, reportedly because of the travel concerns with him coming over from Australia.

Nothing much more to add to last year’s scouting report, but will need to prove his stuff works at the higher levels next year. At the end of the day, he’s a pitchability lefty that needs precision command to be effective. Reminds some scouts of a young Tommy Milone though.
